Run Te Araroa – Day 56 THE END!

Colac Bay to Stirling Point

I went to bed on day 55 knowing I had 83km left. I decided that night I will be finishing this run the next day.

An 8am start after some delicious @kei_bevs pancakes!

We didn’t finish until 11.40pm but we got the job done!

I cannot thank everyone in the last picture enough. @phlmrtn and @jillmale1 for being a fantastic support crew all the way through, physically, mentally and sometimes emotionally. @kei_bevs for being so caring and thoughtful to listen when I needed her and to help run with me when I needed the company (especially towards the end of the last day) @derk7301 @jackie.matthews4 mum and dad for bringing the support (and big van) for the last couple of weeks and for being proud parents at the end of what has been an amazing adventure.
